The White Gorilla
to be different
but all a little
white female gorilla wants is to be
the same as the other gorillas at
Barcelona Zoo; but that doesnt
have a whole fur-ball of
fun as she goes on the run with a
red panda and a clever little girl in
Snowflake The White Gorilla...
BORN IN EQUATORIAL GUINEA BUT ENDING UP IN A ZOO in Barcelona, Spain, in
1966, impish-looking Snowflake (voice of Ariana Grande) isn't like any of the
other gorillas she is pure white.
Having seen her parents killed by poachers, Snowflake is rescued and brought
to the home of a couple (voiced by Dan O'Day-McClellan and April Winchett) who
have a young daughter Wendy (Claudia Abate, voiced by Dallas Lovato). Wendy
and Snowflake become best friends, but Wendy knows a day will come that the
gorilla will have to return to her own kind.
the day finally dawns, Wendy sadly says goodbye to the little gorilla. She has
caused a sensation as she is the only white gorilla in existence and she is
headline news. Everybody knows about her.
In this moving and
childrens tale, there are
many lessons to learn
if you will only
open your heart...
At Barcelona Zoo she is befriended by young male gorilla Elvis (Nathan Cress)
and his sister Petunia (Jennette McCurdy: Malcolm In The Middle), but
their father Anvil (Keith David) refuses to allow his children to play with
the strange little one who is not like any other gorilla in the world.
However, the Red Panda Jenga (David Spade: Grown-Ups) is close at hand
with words of wisdom. He takes Snowflake under his wing and when,
as a Buddhist, he is not deep in meditation he gives her more
confidence in herself.
Snowflake is not happy. She wishes that she was like the other gorillas and
longs to be black. Jenga believes he is a cat (he was, he says, reincarnated
as a Red Panda and was once a black Panther). His wish is to be reunited with
his family in India.
Little knowing that the sinister Dr Archibald Pepper (Pere Ponce, voiced by
the terrific character actor Christopher Lloyd: Back To The Future) is
out to kidnap Snowflake to achieve his dream of eternal life for which he needs
a white gorilla's heart, Snowflake and Jenga set out to find Brunhilde the Witch
(Elsa Pataky, voiced by Diane Michelle), who is visiting Barcelona and who promises
to grant wishes.
A worried Wendy discovers Snowflake's absence and, with her friend Brian (Zachary
Alexander Rice), is soon hot on their trail; but Dr Pepper has laid traps to
catch the white gorilla and he isn't going to put off by anything.
Can Snowflake and Jenga escape the clutches of the evil Dr Pepper? Will their
dreams come true? Or will they discover a way to be happy with their lives as
they are? In this moving and utterly delightful children's tale, there are many
lessons to learn if you will only open your heart…
